Ideal Contracting has played a pivotal role in transforming Holy Redeemer Grade School into a 21st century learning environment. The renovation team divided the Holy Redeemer Renovation Project into four phases. Phase one began during the 2016 – 2017 school year. This project focused on developing the STEM and Robotics classrooms, as well as the Reading Café. Along with the renovations, Holy Redeemer’s first ever STEM Lending Library was installed its first ever STEM Lending Library, allowing students to check out items to bring home and explore with their families.
The second phase consisted of updating the school’s computer lab, GEM classroom, and the teachers’ lounge. The spaces were completely transformed to benefit both the teachers and students.
During the summer of 2017, Ideal Contracting partnered with Magna to commence Phase 3. During this phase 10 classrooms and 2 hallways were renovated. In early 2018, the final phase transformed and updated the front office and main office lobby. Following these renovations, students’ IOWA Test Scores have increased by 5% overall, demonstrating that the renovations have
indeed influenced the students’ learning. The test scores showed the most dramatic improvement in the STEM and Science areas. Holy Redeemer expects to see the trend continue thanks to a strong curriculum and facility improvements. “These new renovations help increase my students’ academic success because it has opened new windows of opportunity.” Ms. Keane states,
and Ideal was happy to be a part of it.
